OGDEN, Utah— A man was found guilty of filing false tax returns and impeding the IRS after evading taxes from 1998 to 2014.
According to release from the Department of Justice, Derald Wilford Geddes, a dentist in Ogden Utah who owned and operated Mount Ogden Dental PC avoided taxes and “obstructed the IRS’s efforts to collect these taxes.”
The release states, “From approximately 1998 through 2014, Geddes took numerous steps to evade approximately $1.8 million in back federal income taxes that he owed. He also obstructed the IRS’s efforts to collect these taxes, including by filing false liens against properties he owned and submitting to the IRS bogus “bonds to discharge debt” that he claimed were from the account of the former Treasury Secretary.”
Geddes was convicted by a federal jury in Utah and faces a maximum penalty of five years in prison for tax evasion and three years in prison for each count of filing a false tax return or impeding the IRS.
